To make a quick comparison, it's like someone made terrible fan fiction based off the previous title and changed the main character to percy. New characters are introduced very poorly, giving huge very long winded back story right after appearing and are so bland that you don't care anyway. I spent most of the time skimming through rather than actually reading, just waiting and hoping for it to get interesting. But nah. Falls flat. I really enjoyed Percy Jackson and the Olympians but this entry does not make me excited for more.
